Winter Wonderland and a Goodbye

A few weeks ago we headed up to London to spend some time with our friends who are moving back to the States any day now.  We headed to Hyde Park to check out Winter Wonderland.

this christmas market was all about the food - we started out with mulled wine, belgian waffles with chocolate, sausage on a baguette and churros

all the marzipan you could possibly want

next stop pretzels

just a small stack of sausages

a pause for beer

meat on a stick

grilled salmon

roasted chestnuts

we had to try these

these people are crazy - it would be so cold

candy apples - we skipped these but had to warm up with some baileys and hot chocolate

Ro had to try out one game

headed through the park

Dill and a new friend

Piccadilly Square
I do love wandering around big cities at night and when the weather is cool - the christmas crowds added excitement to the air

China town

after enjoying the city we headed back to Epsom and a delicious dinner at a cozy, little italian restaurant.  We had a wonderful day with Jim and Alexi and will miss them on our fun adventures while on this side of the pond.  I am sure we will meet up again States side one day soon.  Until then we wish you two all the luck on this med school journey and look forward to when we see you next.
Travel Safe - Cheers


  1. That looks like such fabulous fun. We've never been and I would truly love to, but maybe when the girls are a little older. One thing we found out with our trip into London in the Autumn was they were exhausted.

    Gorgeous pictures,

    1. Thank you Nina. Yes the boys get really tired too. We used to head to the city really early but have learned they last longer if we take our time a little bit in the morning and stay later in the day. They will love it when you do make it there.

    1. Mouth watering is right. I could have eaten so many more treats!!!!!
